Plants keep melting

After 3 weeks of my tank now some plants still keep melting even the new growth?
So i have a 66 gallon tank.
Amazonia substrate
Co2 1 bubble per second
2 white led lights 6500K each
Started with rootabs 3 days ago same for fertilazation product.

The java moss whas turning brown i cut it back so the new growth underneath gets light now and most of the brown moss is gone.

all the pictures you linked after the first all point to a saltwater tank. a few questions first.

are there any livestock in the tank? I see a neon tetra. any others?

what wattage are your lights?

do you have a model number for the lights?


final comment would be its only been 3 weeks and your plants may still not be fully settled in. from what I see your good growth looks nice and healthy so i don't really think its a fertilizer problem at this stage in your tank.

1 bubble per second on 66 gallon tank = nothing.

My 25 gallon tank is almost at 5 bubble per second (too fast to count).

Crank that CO2 way up. Test pH with no CO2 in water, then test again when CO2 is fully concentrated. It should be a full 1.0 - 1.4 drop from the non-CO2 water to the CO2 water.

Increase your water changes, both amount and size.
Manually remove decaying organics, plants and algae.
Clean filters in old tank water each water change.
Start dosing Metricide14 or Seachem Flourish Excel at the "after water change" rate DIALY.
Start some water column fertilzing, Thrive is fine or you go DIY. Cheaper to do DIY in the long run.

What if your filtration setup like? How it the flow in the tank?
